In brief: Medicine + clean air

People with cough-variant asthma or night-time asthma can use steroid inhalers (such as flovent) to reduce swelling, mucus, and "sensitivity" in the airways.
Bronchodilators such as albuterol or xopenex (levalbuterol) enlarge the diameter of the airways to help air flow and mucus come out of the lungs. Singulair chewables are another preventive medicine. A hepa air filter and dustproof/pollenproof bedding helps.

...Acid reducing medications such as Prilosec can help by reducing reflux.

I think you first have to find out what the cause is, allergens, post nasal drip, reflux, obstructive sleep apnea, etc. recommend seeking an allergy, immunologist or pulmonary physician
